An opulent and complex wine with intense flavours of

Producer Note
The Piattelli Vineyards lie in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, where the century
old vines are irrigated by the pure waters melting from the snow crested peaks;
significant in making their wines exquisite. At Piattelli Vineyards great pride is taken in
crafting wines with a sense of place, as each region has distinct terroirs and
microclimates. Led by head winemaker Valeria Antolin, the wines are produced
through her passionate pursuit of perfection. Their gravity fed winery in Cafayate
honours their commitment to sustainable practices. Piattelli Vineyards practises
sustainable farming and their Mendoza vineyards are USDA certified organic. The
grapes are cultivated with arid clean air, crystal clear water and nutrient rich soil
and their award winning wines are produced with wisdom, precision and care.


Vintage
2018 was an excellent vintage in Salta. The weather throughout the growing season
was warm and dry, with no spring frosts. The temperatures were slightly cooler
towards the end of the summer, but then they rose just before harvest ensuring the
berries reached optimal maturity. The grapes were harvested in perfect health and
are bursting with flavour.


Vineyard
As the name alludes, the Trinità is a precise three-grape blend. Trinità's Malbec,
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes are grown on 30 to 70 year old vines,
located in the prestigious Luján de Cuyo DOC, Agrelo and the Uco Valley. Cultivated
with arid clean air, crystal clear water, nutrient rich soil and following a meticulous,
low volume process, the vines are carefully managed to produce low yields of
concentrated fruit.


Winemaking
Each variety was harvested by hand in cases of 18 kilograms. The grapes were
carefully selected before being destemmed. A proportion of the grapes were
fermented in small tanks of 5,000 litres; a proportion in egg shaped concrete tanks
and the final proportion in barrels. Selected yeasts were added. Fermentation
temperatures were controlled between 25°C and 28°C. Manual punch-downs took
place to break the cap of solids, at the beginning of the fermentation this took place
four times per day, reducing to twice per day. The free-run juice was separated form
the pressed juice. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels. The wines were
matured in French and American oak barrels for 13 months. The final blend was
made prior to bottling.


Tasting Note
A complex, elegant wine with a deep ruby hue, Trinità tantalizes the senses with an
aromatic bouquet of plum and raspberry with hints of coffee and spice, which
unfolds across the palate with sweetness and a hint of chocolate. A balanced wine
with ripe tannins, full body and a long finish.
